Fritz Ballard's Beermaking Instructions
When my grandfather was a young man he used to make his own beer. After he
died my mother found these beermaking instructions in his stuff. The
instructions include decoction mashing, fermenting, bottling, and kegging,
as well as a list of needed equipment, including directions for fabricating
some of the equipment. All on 3.5 pages! There is also another half
page that describes the recipe for one particular batch made on November
I hope those scans are readable. Please let me know if they are not.
